The Dark Knight‘s reinvention of The Joker is scary in how realistic it is. This mystery man appears in town with scars on his face and immediately begins murdering. Good guys, bad guys; It doesn’t matter to him as long as it brings about anarchy. The Joker ain’t care.
SCARY BECAUSE: Some men just want to watch the world burn.
Captain Spaulding is more than just your typical roadside clown (they have those?). He’s also the ring leader of an evil family of murder-junkies who trap victims in the labyrinth of horror hidden beneath their home. In other words, he’s a real jerk.
SCARY BECAUSE: You can’t trust redneck clowns.
